Would you mind if I asked what's going on? Reason I ask is that it's not recommended to stop breastfeeding before a year.

If you're still ready to stop, it's best to take it slowly and drop one feeding in a week. Since she's only 9 months, make sure to replace those feedings with formula.

If you would like, you can still continue to breastfeed. If pumping isn't an option, you can nurse part time when you're home. This is what I did, as I was at a job where pumping wasn't an option (I worked with special needs kids, and one of our kids had seizures)

Otherwise, refer to my previous post :)
